It seems as though half of the news we’re getting this week is about game delays. We’ve already heard this week about delays to Marvel’s Avengers and Cyberpunk 2077. Well, we now have news of a delay to Moons of Madness from Rock Pocket Games and Funcom. The Lovecraftian inspired horror game has been available on PC for a little while now to pretty solid reviews. It was due to come to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next week but it has now been pushed back to 24th March. The announcement was made via the game’s official Twitter account. You can check out the Tweet below –
It's with a heavy heart that we have to announce that the console release of Moons of Madness has been moved to March 24, 2020.
This is so we have more time to optimize the game for consoles. We understand and apologize for the frustrations this may cause.
— Moons of Madness Out Now on PC! (@Moonsofmadness) January 14, 2020
Like we always say, it’s always better to get a game when it’s ready rather than rushing it out. Yes, we’ll have to wait a little longer to be scared out of our wits in space but we prefer the scares to be as the developer intended and not because of how bad the game runs. If you want to know more about Moons of Madness, you can check out the PC launch trailer for the game below along with the official description.
A mysterious signal has been recorded coming from the red planet.
The message confounded Orochi scientists. Their analysts broke it down and determined it was of intelligent origin. Orochi management immediately concluded that the discovery was too sensitive for public knowledge and moved to keep it hidden. In secret, the corporation began construction of Trailblazer Alpha, a state-of-the-art Mars research outpost designed to identify the true nature of the message.
You are Shane Newehart, an engineer stationed at Trailblazer Alpha and your security clearance means you are completely unaware of the existence of the mysterious signal. Your job is simply to keep the lights on until the transport ship Cyrano arrives bringing with it a new team to take over your duties.
Soon you discover strange and unusual setbacks. Crucial systems are malfunctioning, the greenhouse is filled with a strange mist and the rest of your team has yet to return from their EVA mission. Things are starting to fall apart.
You begin seeing and hearing things that aren’t there. Visions, hallucinations – or is that even what it is? Is this real… or are you slowly descending into madness?
